Levon has worked as skipper on the Pelorus Mail Boat since early 2020. Hailing from Picton, he spent four years working for Cougar Line on Queen Charlotte Sound/Tōtaranui before a stint in the Bay of Islands, then returning to Marlborough. Having been all over New Zealand he thinks Marlborough, with its areas of untouched natural beauty, is one of the nicest places around.
Levon enjoys getting out on the water in Pelorus Sound/Te Hoiere, which is sparsely populated and quieter than Queen Charlotte Sound/Tōtaranui. One of his favourite spots is Jacob’s Bay, where the Pelorus Mail Boat regularly takes visitors for a bush walk.
When not skippering the Pelorus Mail Boat, Levon enjoys playing golf, mountain biking and diving.
